TITUSVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A teenager and a 9-year-old boy helped save a toddler who nearly drowned in a pool at a Titusville apartment complex.

Multiple news agencies report Titusville Police say surveillance video from Timber Trace Apartments on Friday shows an unsupervised 3-year-old girl walk into the community pool and try to swim before struggling to stay afloat. Police say the girl was underwater for nearly two minutes.

The toddler’s 9-year-old cousin saw the girl floating lifeless in the water and got her out of the pool.

Police say that’s when 18-year-old Breanna Moseley jumped in, using CPR training that she learned in school to save the toddler’s life.

The child was taken to the hospital. Her family says she has been released.

The Department of Children and Families was called to investigate.
